Starting Friday, June 29, 2012 Toronto Zoo visitors will be able to hang out like Charles and the
Western lowland gorilla gang do at the Toronto Zoo's new Gorilla Climb Ropes Course.
Visitors of all ages (and up to 300 pounds) will be able to safely swing, crawl and balance
while guiding their own path through the almost 33 foot high climb's 26 elements,
resulting in a different adventure every time!
Located outside of the Gorilla Rainforest Exhibit, the new family ropes course attraction
combines a series of moderate to challenging climbing elements up to three stories from the
ground, providing visitors with a new view of the gorillas from up high!
The unique safety system allows participants to safely climb three levels in the air at their
own pace, while attached to a sling line. Once guests are in their climbing harnesses,
the overhead tracking system keeps guests safe and attached to the course,
making it an experience that is ideal for guests of all ages.
Children must be at least 48" to go on this attraction. Children 42" to 48" are permitted
but must be accompanied by an adult in order to take part in the fun.
Tickets for the attraction will be $8.00 per person. The course will be open 9:30 am
to 6:30 pm daily, weather permitting and will accompany the Zoo's other seasonal
attractions - Pony and Camel Rides, Conservation Carousel, the Zoomobile and
Sharks at Stingray Bay.
